I am at Peace

I am at Peace

A Poem by PoeticVandal

I have heard somewhere that 'We should not pity the dead, we should envy them.' Thought I'll write a poem on that...

You begin your day with a morning grunt,
Another joyless day in a joyless month,
Immersed in pain and horror the world's abound,
Yet I lay here, my mind is sound.

Trees and forests lit aflame,
And none but men deserve the blame,
The world falls to ruin piece by piece,
But I rest here in eternal peace.

Fearsome wars for every reason,
Stain with blood many a season,
Great cities have come and fall,
And I stay away from it all.

Men have led, as men have followed,
From their children, life has been borrowed,
They cannot be stopped, doom awaits all who try,
But i feel no sorrow, I do not cry.

I plead you, shed no tears,
For I have no regret and have no fears,
If you must, then show your envy,
For I am at peace for eternity.......

A profoundly moving, darkly lit write that takes us to a place of richest inspiration... You do what poet's do best... make us evaluate afresh our lives and fears and sorrows... So well done.
